Bringing out the champion in your kids!

Bringing out the champion in your kids!

Kids these days go through a daily schedule filled with back-to-back activities. With that, they need all the energy they need to help them go through the day. Mummy blogger, Meiling Wong-Chainani shares how a cup of MILO always comes in handy to help her active little ones stay energised for the day!

My kids, like me, are not big breakfast fans. I will be lucky if they ate a slice of bread before they are shipped off to school in the morning. With breakfast being such an important meal to start their day, I really want to make sure they have the energy to meet their demanding schedule of school, extra-curricular activities, sports and play. To top it off, it was really difficult getting my daughter to drink the recommended daily dosage (8oz) of milk every day.

Children these days have so much to do. School is a demanding master. Their social calendar is fuller than mine. Friends are constantly knocking on our doors and there are the weekly Taekwondo, dance, swimming and guitar lessons. Their action-packed life demands from them not just physical energy, but mental acumen and emotional resilience! Hence, I try to ensure they eat healthy meals and snacks. But it is not always easy to persuade active children on the go to eat or drink what you want them to, especially with competition from isotonic drinks and salty, tasty snacks.

MILO came to my rescue!

I remember drinking MILO as a child. As a teenager, I used to have Iced MILO with roti prata while hanging out with my friends. A staple drink in my life for the last 40 years, MILO not only gives me nutritious energy, it is DELICIOUS!

For those of you who have never had MILO, it is a nutritious malt beverage made from the natural goodness of malt, milk and cocoa. MILO contains PROTOMALT – a unique malt extract giving you energy to go further. It also contains a combination of B Vitamins and Magnesium to aid in the release of energy from food.

These days, my kids start off their day with MILO or have it with their afternoon snacks. I also add milk for my daughter’s cup of MILO, thus solving the dilemma of having to force her to drink milk.

Milo, energetic kids A great energy drink – add ice or milk to give your MILO a variety of flavours.

A bit of history – MILO was first sold in Singapore in 1936 and locally produced since 1984. In 2006, MILO attained the Healthier Choice status from Health Promotion Board. As Singapore’s favourite energy drink, more than 1 million cups of MILO are given free to Singaporeans annually through various sports and community events.
